Style of an Elder Daihlridhe (hair), with a Rianthe attached (ear becomes elongated, purple and blue spread through the skin. the little leech-like creature attaches to the ear and allows the Daihlridhe to speak to the animals and plants around them)
Self-respect. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do, because sometimes you can mean nothing to someone who means so much to you. It's not pride. It's self-respect. I am different. "If you knew me in the past, please do not think that I am the same person that you are meeting today. I have experienced more of life, I have encountered new depths in those I love, I have suffered and prayed and I am different."
